Local Parent Files Lawsuit Against Makers Of Gardasil

Mother Warns Parents Against Vaccine Dangers

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- A local mother is suing the makers of Gardasil claiming her daughter suffered from seizures and got brain damage after getting the vaccination.

Gardasil is the vaccine given to women ages 9 to 26 to vaccinate them against HPV, a virus that can cause cervical cancer.

Tracy Wolf showed Action 7 News all her daughters' doctor records after getting the Gardasil vaccine.

Wolf's daughter Alexis has been sick for the past three years with uncontrollable vomiting and seizures which left her brain damaged.

Wolf said her daughter got a series of Gardasil vaccine injections in 2007 and 2008. Shortly after, Alexis reportedly went from being a happy, honor-roll student to a completely different person.

Doctors told Wolf Alexis' condition was behavioral, not medical.

Governments accused of panicking over swine flu

A boy reacts as he is vaccinated against swine flu

A blizzard of inquiries into the handling of the swine flu pandemic, which began one year ago, have been launched amid allegations that governments around the world over-reacted to the threat.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has been accused of crying wolf over its decision last June to declare the H1N1 virus a pandemic, the first for 40 years, which could turn out to be the weakest in history. Up to 15 April there had been 474 deaths from swine flu in Britain, mostly in the age group 15 to 44,

Seasonal flu was driven out last winter by the novel H1N1 pandemic virus, which may therefore end up having saved lives overall from flu in the 2009-10 season.

Early in the pandemic, the Department of Health said it was planning on the basis of a "worst case scenario" of up to 65,000 deaths. That figure was revised down to 1,000 deaths in the autumn, as the virus turned out to be milder and to have spread further than had been thought.

FDA Warns Pfizer Over Geodon Trial Overdosing

By Ed Silverman

The drugmaker was cited for failing to properly monitor pediatric clinical trials in which at least 13 children with bipolar disorder experienced overdosing that led to restless legs, tremors, involuntary facial movements and skin petechiae, which results from bleeding under the skin. The FDA cited Pfizer in an April 9 warning letter that noted the problem was originally found during FDA reviews in 2005.


The FDA wrote that "Pfizer failed to properly ensure monitoring of the study referenced above. As a result of inadequate monitoring, widespread overdosing of study subjects at multiple study sites was neither detected nor corrected in a timely manner," according to the letter.

EFSA evaluates the safety of steviol glycosides

The European Food Safety Authority’s scientific Panel on additives, the ANS Panel, has assessed the safety of steviol glycosides, sweeteners extracted from plant leaves, and established an Acceptable Daily Intake for their safe use. The assessment has been sent to the European Commission which will consider whether or not to authorise the substances in the European Union for their proposed use in particular in sugar free or reduced energy foods such as certain flavoured drinks, confectionery with no added sugar or energy reduced soups.

Of all the harmful actions of modern psychiatry, "the mass diagnosing and drugging of children is the most appalling with the most serious consequences for the future of individual lives and for society," warns the world-renowned expert, Dr Peter Breggin, often referred to as the "Conscience of Psychiatry."

Dr Nathaniel Lehrman, author of the book, "Coming Off Psychiatric Drugs," believes that giving infants and toddlers "powerful, brain-effecting psychiatric medication is close to criminal activity."

"Giving them these drugs," he says, "has no rationale, and ignores the basic fact that youngsters are very sensitive to their environments, both social and chemical, with the juvenile brain easily damaged by the latter."

The United States has become the psychiatric drugging capital of the world for kids with children being medicated at a younger and younger age. Medicaid records in some states show infants less than a year old on drugs for mental disorders.

The use of powerful antipsychotics with privately insured children, aged 2 through 5 in the US, doubled between 1999 and 2007, according to a study of data on more than one million children with private health insurance in the January, 2010, "Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry."

The number of children in this age group diagnosed with bipolar disorder also doubled over the last decade, Reuters reported.

Of antipsychotic-treated children in the 2007 study sample, the most common diagnoses were pervasive developmental disorder or mental retardation (28.2%), ADHD (23.7%), and disruptive behavior disorder (12.9%).

10 serious vaccine events
By Elspeth McLean

To the end of last year, 10 serious adverse events following vaccinations with the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine Gardasil were reported to the national Centre for Adverse Reactions Monitoring (Carm) in Dunedin.

These include a report of a sudden death occurring six months after the third dose of the vaccination, a report from Carm director Dr Michael Tatley says.

The cause of that death has not been reported and is still under coronial investigation.

There was also one report of a life-threatening event involving tongue-swelling related to severe hypersensitivity.

Boston (SmartAboutHealth) - According to a new study, taking vitamin supplements can help you greatly reduce and even erase your overall risk of developing breast cancer.

The study was headed up by Jaime Matta of the Ponce School of Medicine in Puerto Rico, along with a team of well-known researchers.

The study was conducted by focusing on two groups of women, a control group, and a group who had developed breast cancer.

There were 268 women who took part in the study with breast cancer, and 457 women who were considered to be in the healthy group.

The idea behind the study was to see what type of impact taking vitamins had on the overall risk of breast cancer.

Benzene Contamination Activates HIV

| | Comments (1)

Benzene is a rather poisonous substance used as an industrial solvent and added to "green" gasoline. Wikipedia says that this use has been limited, but benzene certainly has not been eliminated from the gasoline we pour into our car when we "fill her up". The substance is also a known carcinogen and as a cause of leukemia. As Cal Crilly details in the following article, benzene may also be implicated in what's known as Aids through the mechanism of DNA methylation.

Here is the article, a joint effort by Cal and his friend Fred, a 70 year old HIV positive with a missing Methylation Gene.

Low dose benzene causes global hypomethylation of DNA and epigenetic hypermethylation of some genes.

The presence of matrix metalloproteineases, MMP's, in benzene toxic patients shows that the extracellular matrix (ECM) has been affected, namely collagen.

Recent research shows that Histone Deacetylase, an enzyme which affects the ECM, is associated with methylation and that Histone Deacetylase Inhibitors (HDAC) can be used to reverse de-acetylation, methylation and the formation of MMP's.

Therefore, it follows that the damage done by benzene to the ECM could be partly reversed by HDAC's.

Since benzene causes collagen damage, it follows that this damage could be due to Histone Deacetylase enzyme which is associated with methylation.

But Benzene also initiates global hypomethylation and as well as hypermethylation epigenetic changes.

So Benzene makes retroviruses come out but triggers Histone Deacetylase.

(As in it is one big cause of cancer that we are doing almost nothing about.)

Hypomethylation can result in DNA or RNA changes.

Latent Herpes viruses are activated by immune activation which Benzene as a toxin would also do.

Benzene toxin would also release parasite egg sacs from collagen in immunocompromised people by ECM oxidation/damage which releases MMP's.

If these eggs have a lipid coating it will be removed by the Benzene allowing the egg sacs to break resulting in chronic parasitic infection.

The combination of immune activation and hypomethylation could result in Histones.
Protease Inhibitors used in HIV-1 protocols are Histone Deacetylase inhibitors and MMP inhibitors.

They are called Protease Inhibitors so over time they would stop the release of parasite egg sacs from the ECM stopping the chronic immune affect of Benzene toxicity.

Fred

"Airborne benzene was associated with a significant reduction in LINE-1 (-2.33% for a 10-fold increase in airborne benzene levels; P = 0.009) and AluI (-1.00%; P = 0.027) methylation." Or hypomethylation of LINE-1 retroviral elements.

Last month, the New York Times reported that researchers were "puzzled" by the role of bisphosphonate osteoporosis drugs like Fosamax in "rare thighbone fractures."

Patients, on the other hand, are neither puzzled nor do they believe the fractures are rare.

"I broke the left femur (shattered it 2 times in 2006 and 2007)," while on Fosamax writes a 72-year-old patient this week on askapatient.com. "I now walk with a walker and the Dr. says it can never be repaired."

"I twisted my left leg while shopping & broke left femur in two places, requiring surgery, pins and a rod," wrote a 61-year-old patient on the site after taking Fosamax for 13 years. "Then in 2/08 I jarred same side foot coming off a step & developed a stress fracture that won't heal. I now have a stress fracture on the right side femur after walking on the beach."

"After six years of taking Fosamax, I slipped in ice in my driveway and broke my femur (thigh bone). Two years later, still taking Fosamax, I fell in the snow and my other femur snapped before I hit the ground," wrote another woman.

"I did nothing really physical except water therapy, yet I have a break" in the 3rd lumbar vertebrae posts a 67-year-old patient who had been taking Fosamax for 14 months.
